Educa invites you to their event

Learning Stories for America - What, Why and How

About this event

by Dr. Annie White

Find out why learning stories are a hot topic in early childhood education. SALSA-founder and learning stories advocate, Dr. Annie White explains why she is on a mission to have New Zealand-style learning stories adopted as an authentic early childhood education assessment approach in America.

SALSA (Supporting Advancement of Learning Stories in America) held its first national Learning Stories Conference in May - proudly sponsored by Educa. The conference tagline was "Transforming Relationships in Early Care and Education" speaks to the power of learning stories to engage parents in the learning.

In this webinar, Annie will cover:

  • What are learning stories
  • Why you should consider learning stories for your center
  • How learning stories fit into the US authentic assessment structure
  • What's next for the SALSA movement

Learning stories celebrate a child's success, they describe a child's learning journey where the child is the hero, they give teachers permission to make it personal, they connect to learning and because they describe learning, they can start real conversations with parents.

In this free webinar, you will be inspired to hear how learning stories are bringing the joy back to teachers and how they can transform your center.
